This is a complete collection of the superb short stories which have appeared in: "Over To You", "Kiss Kiss", "Someone Like You", "Switch Bitch" and eight further stories: "The Umberella man"; "Mr Botibol"; "Vengeance in Mine inc"; "The Butler"; "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life"; "The Bookseller"; and, "The Hitchhiker, The Surgeon".

'Roald Dahl is one of the few wirters I know whose work can acurately be described as addictive. Through hsi tales runs a vien of macabre malevolence, the more effective because it springs from slight, almost inconsequential everyday things. The result is black humour of the most sophisticated kind'- Irish Times.

This long-awaited omnibus contains all the stories from Roald Dahl's world - famous books- Over to you, Someone Like You, Kiss Kiss and Switch Bitch- plus eight further tales of the unexpected...

'These stories pack their punch...The comeuppance at the end is often relishingly moral-s in 'The Bookseller', best of the newly collected stories, where a bookshop scam involving the extortion of cahs from rich windows through fake invoices for risque books comes to a lovely sharp end. But this repeated serving right of villains never quite softens the hard-boiled, even  cynical, strain in Dahl's vision of humanity, and it's that ruthless unsentimentalism that is Dahl's greatet attraction'- Observer

'Dahl's is too good a storyteller to become predictable, so you never know whether the tyrant ofr the tyrannized will win in the end'-Daily Telegraph.
